Use this SMR exercise AFTER you do the Lats Roll, Neck Roll and the Pecs Hand Press (or one of it's alternatives).
This SMR exercise addresses one of the 4 rotator cuff muscles, the supraspinatus, while also addressing the outer area of the trapezius.
It is similar to the Supra Floor Press, but some people find this movement more effective.
If you have trouble with rotator cuff issues, especially pain in the top of your shoulder when you lift your arm, then this exercise is for you! Keep in mind that the lats and the pectoralis minor muscle are involved in everything you do with the shoulder blade.
You will likely benefit from loosening knots in the supraspinatus, but be sure you stretch out the lats and pec minor or your issue is likely to come right back.
